Abstract:

The development of a magnetoelectric flowmeter for measuring the mass flowrate of cryogenic propellants is described in detail. The magnetoelectric flowmeter concept described herein is one in which a magnetic field, proportional to flowrate, is generated by the flow of a dielectric fluid through an electric field. A means is described whereby the output of the flowmeter is proportional to mass flowrate. This type of meter presents an obstructionless flow passage contains no moving parts possesses linearity over an extreme dynamic range is inherently small and compact and possesses a long shelf life. Comprehensive theoretical and engineering analysis of the modus-operandi are presented. Modified author abstract
